Late Again, or Atheism in Christianity

Finally read my own blog (“possibly related posts”) and found out about an event a month ago to launch the publication of Atheism in Christianity. Well, maybe better late than never applies, since the book itself looks to be worth reading. The idea of atheism in Christianity is reminiscent of Bonhoeffer’s “religionless religion” — whatever that meant! (A short review of the work is online at Socialist Review, and a bit longer one at the Guardian, and both are generally favorable.)

  1. Atheism may well be spurred on by the refusal of religions to engage in self-criticism. I’ve just read http://deligentia.wordpress.com/2009/11/24/263/ on how foreign self-criticism is to religion, and, moreover, how religion misunderstands itself. You might be interested in it.

    • Yes, indeed, thanks very much. The notion of “untruths” in our own religions — regarded as such by those of us who are pretty devout practitioners — I found particularly uplifting to see out in the open. (Constantly trying to bail out enough bathwater to find the baby, we pray still breathing.)

  2. Hello

    I’ve just uploaded two rare interviews with the Catholic activist Dorothy Day. One was made for the Christophers [1971]–i.e., Christopher Closeup– and the other for WCVB-TV Boston [1974].

    Day had begun her service to the poor in New York City during the Depression with Peter Maurin, and it continued until her death in 1980. Their dedication to administering to the homeless, elderly, and disenfranchised continues with Catholic Worker homes in many parts of the world.

    Please post or announce the availability of these videos for those who may be interested in hearing this remarkable lay minister.

    Thank you
